How to get prepared for results day
By: Northumbria University
If you don't get the grades you need, have a back-up plan. Research other courses and universities and have something to fall back on if this unfortunately happens.
Find out which courses you can get onto through Clearing if you don't make your firm and insurance choices. Put together all the numbers you may need to call, and the conditions needed to get onto the course.
Make sure you have all the information you need around the course, the university, the city, and more. Look into things like accommodation, what opportunities your course offers, and what there is to do in the city.
Doing all this will allow you to make an informed decision if you don't meet the entry requirements for your firm and insurance choices on 13th August 2020.
Ensure you have to hand whatever documents you need when calling university hotlines. The things you will need will be:
· Your UCAS number
· Clearing hotline number
· Login details for UCAS Track
· Your A-Level and GCSE grades
This will make it a lot easier and less stressful when going through the Clearing process. It wouldn't harm to print off your personal statement again and have that handy in case you get asked any questions by the hotline operator.
When making calls to Clearing hotlines, you will need to know exactly what to say. First off, you will need to outline your issue. Are you changing courses because you did better than expected? Did you not meet your entry requirements?
